DI Server status

Hey All,

I know many people have talked about DI server on this forum in "negative" terms. We are currently reviewing this as a possible platform on which to develop a web application that will allow users to create sales orders, update business partner info etc.

I have a few general questions about DI SErver:

1) How much does it cost for a license for DI Server?

2) Is DI server codebase updated every time DI API is updated? (IE. Are new objects added, bug fixes etc..)

3) Will it be supported and updated for future releases or will it be phased out?

4) Has anyone had any success using DI server in the method described above? Many of the posts I read about DI server are problems, errors, bugs etc...

Thanks for any information that can be provided.

Curtis,

With respect to your questions ...

1) How much does it cost for a license for DI Server?

<b>-You would need to check with your SAP Channel Manager on the price</b>

2) Is DI server codebase updated every time DI API is updated? (IE. Are new objects added, bug fixes etc..)

<b>- The core of the DI Server itself is the DI API so as the DI is updated so is the DI Server. There are differences however with respect to what can be done via the DI Server and the DI API itself. The SDK HelpCenter will give you details around this as that is where the DI Server documentation is located for version 2005A.</b>

3) Will it be supported and updated for future releases or will it be phased out?

<b>- Not aware of any plans currently to phase out the DI Server.</b>

4) Has anyone had any success using DI server in the method described above? Many of the posts I read about DI server are problems, errors, bugs etc...

<b>- In the US I know there are ISV's that have used and are using the DI Server, although I think that there are few mainly because they have been able to craft their solutions using the DI and UI API's and have not had a need for the DI Server to date. </b>

HTH,

Eddy
